"9 days! 9 days ‘til the night of the changing seasons. 9 days to find and decipher the incantation that holds the god RAMOR as prisoner in his conch shell gaol. 9 days to hinder the ghoulish servants of RAMOR from preparing for his ascension to the throne of AKBAR, and his subsequent reign of terror. 9 days of negotiation and conflict with the curious inhabitants of this strange, twin mooned world. 9 days to accomplish the (near) impossible."
